March 10th: Eat Vegetarian for a Month

This is going to be hard! But let’s see how it goes!

I found this article that outlines some pros and cons of eating vegetarian: Pros and Cons of Vegetarianism. For the most part, it seems important to replace meat with high protein foods and lots of fruits and vegetables, rather than sugary, fatty and sweet foods.

I also found this graph of a good serving size of items to eat.

Hopefully, it will help me eat healthier! I think mostly I will need to make sure I get enough protein. Wish me luck, I’ll keep posting as the month goes on and I complete other things as well.

February 5th: Bring Breakfast for Morning Crew

Sometimes I get overwhelmed when I fall behind on my 365 things. It can be hard working full time, taking care of the pups, trying to have a life… blah, blah, excuses excuses. When this happens though I tend to not want to do anything the next day or the next because I feel like I have to catch up for all the days I missed. But I need to get over that.

Today I am doing something for today and I will worry about catching up on the missed days as I can.

So anyway, today I’m on my way to work and buying breakfast for everyone I work with. Hopefully a nice surprise. Plus, it keeps me in my routine of eating breakfast.

January 8th: Bake Homemade Bread

Anyone that knows me personally knows I have been on a major baking kick.

I got a BEAUTIFUL Kitchenaid Standing Mixer on Black Friday this year and have been obsessed with baking. For Christmas I made over 10 dozen cookies, a cheesecake and doggie treats for all my doggie parent friends.

Today I made some bread. I did not make it from scratch but got a premix for pumpkin bread. I decided to batch it as muffins instead of bread so it is more easily shareable with friends.

So I’m headed out to work for the day. Ate some pumpkin bread for breakfast to check off my breakfast for the day, walked Bella (who is getting even better at sitting) and even took some time to clean up the yard a bit this morning which will soon be a big task on my list to check off.

This year is moving quickly, just trying to keep up with something everyday!

January 6th: Eat Breakfast Every Morning for a Week

I know it is something most people do on a regular basis but being a bartender often tends to lead to late nights and late mornings.

The new pup in the house is changing up the daily routine. I am waking up earlier so we can go on walks. I thought this was a perfect time to check this one off the list and hopefully start a new trend to last the year.

I made an egg sandwich this morning.

Fast and delicious. I probably need to go out and buy some other breakfast foods though.

I think, however, this will lead to more afternoon naps. But I’m ok with that because Bella is ready for naps too.

Best of luck to all of you out there still working on resolutions.

February 12th: Bring Bagels for Morning Staff

Well, everyone at work loves this! Such a simple task but a great gesture. Plus, it usually starts a ripple effect of other people buying the next few weeks.

I took the dogs to the park this morning and was out in west Denver. So in my way in I decided to see if there was a bagel shop on the way. I found a little spot so got a bag and some cream cheese to share with co-workers.

It was a great pick me up to start the morning. Only wish I could take the pups with me.
